The rapid and sustained economic growth of the past two decades has led to marked increases in energy demand in the region, and developing Asia will continue to lead the energy demand growth. The increase in energy demand threatens energy security and efforts to curb carbon dioxide emissions, affecting health and social well-being. These common energy challenges will need to be addressed through concerted efforts. This book provides several multi-dimensional quantitative analysis of the relationship between energy and other subjects including but not limited to income and economic growth, environment and health, food and agricultural production.
The book also provides the most constructive policy recommendations concerning the relationship between energy, economic development, social development, and environmental development.
